Call for Papers in pdf

The series of MFCS symposia, organized since 1972, has a long and well-established tradition. The MFCS symposia encourage high-quality research in all branches of theoretical computer science. Their broad scope provides an opportunity to bring together researchers who do not usually meet at specialized conferences. Quality papers presenting original research on theoretical aspects of computer science are solicited.

Topics of interest

Principal topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • algorithmic game theory,
  • algorithmic learning theory,
  • algorithms and data structures (incl. sequential, parallel, distributed, approximation, graph, network, on-line, parameterized, optimization),
  • automata, grammars and formal languages,
  • bioinformatics,
  • complexity (structural and computational),
  • computational geometry,
  • computer-assisted reasoning,
  • concurrency theory,
  • cryptography and security,
  • databases and knowledge-based systems,
  • formal specifications and program development,
  • foundations of computing,
  • logic in computer science,
  • mobile computing,
  • models of computation,
  • networks (incl. wireless, sensor, ad-hoc),
